Summer is finally here and what better way to celebrate it than with this delicious plant-based Strawberry Chia Seed Pudding! πŸ“

Strawberry Chia Seed Pudding: a Health Bomb! πŸ’£

Strawberry Recipes – Often Laden with Fat and Sugar….but not in this Strawberry Chia Seed Pudding! πŸ“

Often, recipes incorporating strawberries are not very healthy as it’s hard to combine the flavor of strawberries with a savory dish. Obviously, except for my Berry Watermelon Fruit Salad, which is both delicious and super healthy!

Most strawberry recipes you find are desserts – such as strawberry cheesecake and strawberry shortcake. Yum! These desserts are laden with fat and sugar though. I was determined to have a delectable “dessert”, high in protein and low in sugar and fat. One so healthy, I could also eat it for breakfast.

I’d say I was quite successful in achieving that goal with this healthy parfait! It’s got so much protein, that it’s suitable for muscle repair and weight loss. There’s a small amount of honey, but low enough combined with the protein to keep your blood sugar stable! You can check out all of my strawberry recipes here. πŸ“πŸ˜‹


Vanilla Protein Powder + Greek Yogurt = Fluffy Heaven πŸ‘ΌπŸ½

This Orgain Vanilla Vegan Protein Powder is THE BOMB, especially in this healthy parfait! I often love to mix it in yogurt and throw some bananas or berries in it as well – it tastes like banana or strawberry cream pie! I also love to blend berries with peanut butter and their Chocolate protein powder. Something about their whey protein is so fluffy when blended, it’s like a healthy PB&J ice cream or an Arby’s frosty! I can’t speak for the Vegan flavors, though they may whip up pretty well too. Let us know in the comments if you try it and it does!

These two ingredients mixed are a double dose of protein. No need to sweeten the yogurt with this protein powder! Keep in mind though, that it includes an artificial sweetener. I usually like to avoid artificial sweeteners, but they are okay occasionally.

Beet Powder for Festive Color and Sneaky Nutrition πŸ’—

I love to be creative with my food, and this amazing natural food colorant is the perfect way to do so! Besides, three tablespoons of this beet powder are equal to the nutrition (minus the fiber) of three beets! Nitrates found in beets convert to nitric oxide in the body which has many benefits. Nitrates in beets can help support heart health, promote enhanced energy and stamina, and support healthy circulation. As a runner and cyclist, I love my beet juice and Berry Beet Smoothies!
